CMT Required Reading

The CMT Program is designed for SELF-STUDY!

The CMT Board of Governors has recommended the following minimum study hours for CMT exams, based on having a general college education and work experience in the financial markets.

CMT Exam Level 1 -- 100 hours
CMT Exam Level 2 -- 140 hours
CMT Exam Level 3 -- 160 hours

Recommended study time differs from person to person based on experience with the subject, time working in the field and prior knowledge of technical analysis. However a significant effort is required on the part of all candidates wishing to successfully complete the 3 exam levels.
